EFFECTIVE MEN’S GROUP PROGRAMS This new half day training program is designed for men and women who work in organisations, services and companies that provide health, welfare, wellbeing or community services for men through group work sessions or programs. The focus will be on how we can more effectively communicate health and wellbeing messages to men by way of group programs. The training will provide a brief overview of how best to work with men in group situations and how to make your men’s programs more effective and fun. It will cover what works in promoting a men’s program, types of men’s programs, tools for running them, tips for women running men’s groups and ways of keeping things running smoothly and creating new activities for your group program.

EMOTIONAL MANAGEMENT FOR MEN This half day training program addresses how workers can assist men to manage the ups and downs in life more effectively by using better communication skills and managing intense emotions. The way that most men are raised in our society can often discourage them from communicating their feelings or talking to people on an intimate or personal level. The stereotypical image of a man is one who’s supposed to be strong, tough and silent. Being open with your emotions isn’t generally recognised and rewarded as being a positive quality in men. But times are changing and being more ‘emotionally alive’ for many men is just as rewarding as their achievements in their relationships, career and sporting prowess. We will look at what works for men in dealing with stress and anxiety with a focus on using mindfulness skills, emotion regulation and assertiveness training.

WORKING WITH MEN AFFECTED BY VIOLENCE

In Australia today up to one in three victims of family violence are male. While many services have quite rightly been established over the past three decades to support female victims of family violence, the needs of male victims remain largely unmet.

The issue of men affected by violence in intimate relationships has been reported for many years and now workers in the domestic violence, community and family relationship sectors are acknowledging this problem and seeking out training for their workers. This training program is for health, welfare and community workers and provides information, strategies and a model for working with men affected by violence in their relationships.



Training program includes:
Background to the problem and context violence and abuse occurs in |The affect of domestic violence on a person - what’s different for men | Strategies for working with men from a strengths based perspective | A model for working with men affected by violence | Building services for male victims of DV into your agency – what you need to consider | Promoting work with male victims of DV
